The web-based management page of TP-Link routers is a built-in internal web server that does not require internet access.  It does however require your device to be connected to the TP-Link router.  This connection can be wired or wireless, so you can log into the management page from the desktop computer, phone, tablet, iPad, etc.
Note: Low version of your web browser may cause compatibility problem with the web-based interface(management page) of your device, such as unable to log into the interface, display incomplete features etc.
Step 1

Choose your connection type (Wired or Wireless)

Step1a:  If Wireless, connect to your TP-Link wireless network. Find the wireless network (named TP-LINK_xxxxxx by default which is printed on the label of the router) from the WiFi list on your device and connect it with the wireless password (default password is printed on the router's label as well).

Step1b:  if Wired connects your Ethernet cable to one of the LAN ports on the back of your TP-Link router.
